Fraudsters infiltrate Hacktivist software, embedding malware.

[newsimage]http://static.rankone.nl/images_posts/2012/03/rmEo7T.png[/newsimage]For anyone not familiar with the term, a "Hacktivist" is a new-age activist that uses computer hacking skills and tools to infiltrate or disrupt websites, usually owned by banks, government, and large-scale corporations. These individuals often form groups that coordinate activities like DDoS (distributed-denial of service) attacks, which cause websites to go offline. Knocking sites offline causes financial strain and hardship on the companies, which have to implement aggressive defense plans in order to keep their websites available to the public.

Well now the targeters have become targets themselves.

Anonymous was amusing when they began as an organzation to harass the church of scientology.

They are far less so now that the self-described "a$$holes of the internet"
have branched out into attacking other targets.

as for they themselves being scammed?

What goes around comes around.

But governments are always to stupid to fix the real problem…

“THEMSELVES IN GOVERNMENT” fix the government and throw out the bums and rid the lobbyists and earmarks. And then you will get real governing of whom they will really help and not their rich friends.

Somewhere on the journey from ivory tower where theory is king
and the real world, a solid bitch slap from reality teaches you pragmatism.

The fact is these anonymous people are still locked in their juvenile world.

what they believe is their “life experience” is more like a kitten being humanized and infantilized preventing them from ever being psychologically “cats”.

But never really being housebroken either…

which is to say that their protests and attacks are in no way useful.

They hurt the rest of us more than they hurt their “targets”
